Enjoy A Full Day Of Adventure With A Hike, Picnic, And Waterfall Chasing At Vermont’s Texas Falls Recreation Area

Texas Falls Recreation Area is the perfect family outing destination because there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Along with a hike, waterfalls, opportunities to go fishing, and a designated picnic area, there’s also an observation deck that’s a popular spot for taking photos on special occasions!

The path around Texas Falls is a loop that’s just over a mile. Even though it’s an easy hike, take time to enjoy the sites and sounds as you spend time on this trail. And, as long as your dog is on a leash, they can join you for this fun day out too!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate


After you’ve explored the trail and waterfalls, take advantage of the scenery and enjoy a picnic lunch at the pavilion area.

The USDA Forest Service also has information about renting the pavilion for a private event.
